Overview

Located in the heart of the Town, the World Heritage Centre (operated by The St. George's Foundation) is a key orientation and resource point for visitors and students of all ages. In our Theatre Room you can sit back and enjoy a short film "A Stroll through St. George's" and then view the mural artwork by Emile A. Verpilleux in our upstairs gallery. On our Main floor we have interactive educational exhibits which highlight "The Age of Discovery, Bermuda's historic links to Jamestown, the wreck of the "Sea Venture" and the story of Bermuda's first forts. The ground floor also houses Second-Hand Rose, our charity shop with a great selection of gently-used second-hand "treasures"!

Oldest and most interesting architecturally are of Bermuda. Lots to see, photograph, wander around. Buses and ferries get you there easily. Beaches are right nearby as are a whole host of restaurants, bars, etc.

We are so glad that you enjoyed our Old Towne. It is a great place to wander through the small streets and alleyways and look at all of the architecture.

I wish we stopped here first after getting off the ferry. $5 admission is well worth the overview and history. Some exhibits already showing wear and broken when we went. Again- film was worth it. Also great way for tourists to support preservation efforts in...More

I recommend to my Little Island BIG Adventure Tour participants to make the World Heritage Center their first attraction to visit. The exhibit and the video offered makes this the best value of historical currency that Bermuda has. It truly is the "Gateway to Bermuda"...More

If you take the ferry to St. George, you will walk right past this building, but make sure you stop in and look around. It offers a good overview of the history of this Unesco World Heritage Site. Be sure to watch the video.

Nice place to go with some interesting artifacts, after you take a pic with the cannons go in and get a map and the tourist lady will help you with any questions.

Bermuda is closely connected to the start of western Europe's colonization of North America and the Centre gives a good review of Bermuda's history since the first British shipwreck on the islands.

You can take a bus into downtown and transfer out there. $4 round trip but it will be time consuming.
